Easy social media dashboard
uberVU is the social media dashboard that provides real-time social media analytics and metrics for small and medium enterprises. uberVU keeps track of stories on popular social sites in close to real time and tracks the whole conversations, not just mentions. If you search for a brand on uberVU the application returns whole conversations in a single thread – not just the post, but comments to the post from all over the social web – Blogger, WordPress, Movable Type, TypePad, Del.icio.us, StumbleUpon, Picasa, Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, Digg, Reddit, HackerNews, Mixx, Twitter, Facebook, Google Buzz, MySpace and forum.
uberVU shows keystats around a keyword – number of mentions per day and for the last 30 days, monthly and daily sentiment regarding a certain keyword or brand. For each conversation around a brand, uberVU shows when it got comments around the Web and where it spread and also provides an easy way to compare a brand against the competition as far as the volume of mentions and overall sentiment are concerned.
